I was told when I called in last month that this system does not work and this would not be my appointment date. So I did not have an appointment on this date or time

I began seeing Dr. James when I retired late last year. Due to Covid, my appointment in April was cancelled and everything including blood work was pushed back to June. So this was a routine visit. I have referred both of my daughters to Dr. James since then. He and his staff are great.

Due to current conditions, visit was conducted via telephone. As a long time (30+years) patient of Dr. James I was comfortable with this arrangement. Thankfully I have not had any major health issues and our visit went smoothly.

The whole staff at Primary is great - checking in is done in a friendly, efficient way. The wait time is minimal. The nurses are so good at what they do. Time with Dr. James covering results of exam plus taking time to cover any concerns I might have. Makes for a good experience!

Very likely! I especially appreciate the fact that Dr. James will take the time to listen to my concerns. I was especially interested in a doctor with a specialization in geriatric medicine. I will need his help navigating the next phase of my life.
